When you're One Direction star Niall Horan and you want to rehabilitate on the Chelsea training ground, you can apparently do so. 

The 20-year-old, who is healing up from a knee injury, was given permission to train on the ground by Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho. According to the Daily Mail, Mourinho's daughter Matilde is a fan of the band.

Horan and Mourinho first met when the band had a private training session with Real Madrid in May 2013 when, of course, Mourinho was managing the Spanish giants.
